First, there are the temperature settings. Obviously, different hair requires a different heat level. The thicker your hair is, the higher level of heat you should apply to straighten it. I highly recommend you to read the instructions which usually say what temperature you should select for your particular hair type. This may vary a little bit from one flat iron to another. The general rule here is the less heat you apply, the better your hair condition will be. And always use a heat protectant, regardless of your hair type.
Featuring advanced ceramic heat technology, the ghd Gold Professional Performance 2" Styler is designed to operate at the optimum 365°F styling temperature for healthy-looking hair with enhanced, lustrous shine. Styling thicker, longer hair is quicker and easier thanks to the larger plates that glide through strands without snagging for fast, effortless styling and flawlessly polished strands. It heats up in as little as 30 seconds to tame frizz and transform coarse textures into sleek, smooth styles that last. The styler has contoured, round edges to unleash undulating waves, and with its styling versatility, you can change your look every day.
Excellent buying

Dylan also loves this Karmin iron. "The plates are coated in tourmaline which helps for an easy glide," he says. Fighting frizz with infrared ions, Dylan suggests that it "makes this iron better for super coarse hair." Bonus points: it also has different voltage settings for international use. The jetsetter in you will be thankful as you globetrot glamorously.
If your hair is fine, fragile or damaged you have to be careful with the temperature. Your locks require the lower heat to reduce the damage. The maximum heat level that you can apply on thin or damaged hair is 350°F. But maybe you should start with lower temperature, something like 170°F – and see if this would work. Also, thin damaged hair requires a flat iron with narrow plates so that you will be able to straighten it in one pass.
best flat iron I've ever owned. My hairdresser recommended ghd and I couldn't be happier. I have owned chi in the past but bit the bullet on this one when my second chi quit working and I'm happy I did.
the ghd iron is far superior to any other flat iron out there. I will never buy anything else. They last forever
amazing styler curls my stubborn hair perfectly
My last ghds lasted me 10 years. The hair straighteners are really good when working however the ones i’ve been sent are faulty you can hear the electricity within the straighteners crackleing sounds like a loose connection so i’m scared to use them. Would be excellent if this wasn’t the case.
although they are selling a red version on their own website today for slightly less. So if you thought this was too cheap to be an authentic product don't worry. It isn't.
authentic heats up immediately and straightens in no time. Worth the
Thick, coarse hair can withstand high heat AND it responds better to it. Using high heat also means that you minimize the number of passes you’ll make which will benefit your hair’s health. You’ll want a hair straightener that has adjustable heat settings with a maximum temperature reaching the 400-degree range like the HAI Beauty Concepts 1.25″ Classic Convertable Flat Iron.
I am officially in love with this flat iron and I just got it today I have been a chi person my whole life and as many know those die usually within a year. However I just kept purchasing them because as far as I knew they were the best. Now I'm kicking myself for sticking with the chi for so long because this flat iron is a million times better. It straightens my hair so so so well and fast I don't have to go over it a million times. And it cuts down on a lot of frizz. Another thing I love about it is that it heats up so fast it takes about 15 seconds if that to heat up and it's completely ready to go. Usually I'd go outside and within 30 minutes my hair would become wavy due to humidity however that hasn't happened yet. I just came in from being outside for a few hours after straightening my hair with this flat iron. I could say so many things about how great it is. The packaging is adorable the flat iron is just so sleek and professional looking. I love it
"Unite Pro Tools Flat Iron is an easy-to-use, low maintenance iron," says Chris Dylan. Dylan works with Kylie Jenner so finding an easy-to-use tool is a must when you’re helping someone go from a platinum blonde bob to jet black floor length extensions. in a span of a week. He notes that with a fast-heating iron and beveled edges, it creates soft waves and has a great temperature gauge that keeps you firmly in control of the heat.
I've used these straighter for years and love them. They get so hot and I can do my thick hair in a few minutes. Plus they are salon level so have the extra long cord. However it sounds like you need to buy from the ghd website. I did and it arrived pretty fast about a week I think you know its genuine and the price is the same at 150.
bought one of these 8 years ago and it finally started going out so I ordered another one for my wife. Well worth the money in my opinion.

I received my styler on time and was able to register it so it's the real deal. Very easy process. This iron leaves my hair soft shiny and straight I love it more than my paul brown which I have used for years. I highly recommend it to anyone.
Since the 1970s, women have worn their hair in a wide variety of fairly natural styles. In the 1980s, women pulled back their hair with scrunchies, stretchy ponytail holders made from cloth over fabric bands. Women also often wear glittery ornaments today, as well as claw-style barrettes used to secure ponytails and other upswept or partially upswept hairstyles.[14] Today, women and men can choose from a broad range of hairstyles, but they are still expected to wear their hair in ways that conform to gender norms: in much of the world, men with long hair and women whose hair doesn't appear carefully groomed may face various forms of discrimination, including harassment, social shaming or workplace discrimination.[35] This is somewhat less true of African-American men, who wear their hair in a variety of styles that overlap with those of African-American women, including box braids and cornrows fastened with rubber bands and dreadlocks.[36]

If hair is pinned too tightly, or the whole updo slips causing pulling on the hair in the follicle at the hair root, it can cause aggravation to the hair follicle and result in headaches. Although some African-Americans may use braiding extensions (long term braiding hairstyle) as a form of convenience and/or as a reflection of personal style, it is important not to keep the braids up longer than needed to avoid hair breakage or hair loss. Proper braiding technique and maintenance can result in no hair damage even with repeated braid styles.
Styling products aside from shampoo and conditioner are many and varied. Leave-in conditioner, conditioning treatments, mousse, gels, lotions, waxes, creams, clays, serums, oils, and sprays are used to change the texture or shape of the hair, or to hold it in place in a certain style. Applied properly, most styling products will not damage the hair apart from drying it out; most styling products contain alcohols, which can dissolve oils. Many hair products contain chemicals which can cause build-up, resulting in dull hair or a change in perceived texture.
I love my new ghd professional original styler 1 inch. The dual voltage allows me to style my hair when traveling which was a real problem before. Compact to take on any trip. Love it

I love ghd great product. Fast delivery as well.
this is my first ghd flat iron. My stylist recommended the product for how fast it heats up very light weight and how great it is for my hair. Deva concepts was also fabulous in shipping and packaging. I registered the product with ghd as some reviews indicated the product was not a ghd . You can trust deva concepts they deserve a 10 star rating
recommended by my hair stylist. Was planning to order regular model but professional model was on sale. Heats up very quickly. Works great. I have curly hair but no on knows
“I debated whether to buy this product or the more expensive titanium flat irons and decided to give these a try. I have been natural for about two years … But could never find flat irons that would tame my hair. GIRL, I am telling you these flat irons are like that. One pass through over freshly washed and blow-dried hair and I was in awe. Why go to a salon? I did my own silk press and a week later, I still got shine and body. Best iron I’ve had in years, and I love the color.”

love this straightener I used to use chi brand and per my hairdresser they sold out a while back and have gone downhill in quality so she suggested I get this brand. So far it is great for my naturally curly thick hair
– We have not tried the GDH straighteners, and while they look like a very professional and high-quality product, they seem very fully priced, and do not seem to have a temperature control option, which might be very helpful on your daughter’s hair. You can read some flat iron options via the link below, and I would suggest that something like the Remington S9500PP Pearl Pro Ceramic Flat Iron might be an economical option. It has a 1 inch plate (thinner is good to start with for younger hair), is reasonably priced and has good temperature control.
this is the best iron money can buy. It is expensive but its worth it if you can save and buy it.

Best hair straightener I have ever used
after reading other reviews about people not getting an authentic ghd flat iron I contacted my niece who bought one for my sister at the retail outlet sephora and asked her to send me the sku number off the box. Once I got that I was able to look through the models available on amazon and buy one that is authentic. Other people's reviews had convinced me to make sure I was getting an authentic ghd flat iron. I am grateful to them for posting their review so I could make an informed purchase. I really like this flat iron. I had used my sister's ghd when I was visiting her last year so I already knew this was the brand for me. I have very think hair and the revlon and conair brands just weren't cuttin' it.
When you’re shopping for a hair straightener it’s important to consider your hair type and the style you want for your hair. Some heat tools are designed to straighten and smooth your hair to prevent frizz while others may just be useful for basic straightening on hair that’s already fairly straight or simply wavy. Different temperature settings work better for different hair styles. Some straighteners are also great to create loose waves in your hair making them ideal for those who like to experiment with different hair styles. It can be helpful to read online consumer reviews when you’re choosing a hair straightener to ensure you get the best option for the money you want to spend.

the order came quickly and as I live in france I found the plug system smart the straightener does wonders in very little time even though I have long hair I no longer need a brush and either a third hand to hold the mirror while doing my hair at the back of my head or twist my head and hands so as to hold brush plus hair dryer to do the back. I just hold a mirror in one hand stand back to the mirror and with the other hand hold the ghd which I just keep passing through my hair until it looks silky. A marvel thanks ghd


does exactly what it is supposed to and is a ghd. The registration worked fine although the registration numbers were not on the cord as ghd site suggests. They are actually on the label inside of the iron by the power switch and hard to read. My daughter tried one of these while in the uk and had to have one. Hopefully it lasts as they are spendy. Best price here on amazon.
since my 10 year old ghds finally packed in a year ago I've been using a well known but inferior brand which were much cheaper and have really noticed the difference my hair took longer to style and was drier and frizzier than when I was using the ghds. Therefore these straighteners were a real treat to use.they heat up in a few seconds and give a 'beep' warning signal when they're ready to use. The paddles are narrow but plenty wide enough for my short thick hair. My hair glided through smoothly without tangling or pulling leaving my hair smooth shiny and straight.these straighteners come with a very long 2.7m cable. Unfortunately it has one of those rounded plugs which are really difficult to pull out of the socket. This didn't bother me too much as I leave mine plugged in and switch the socket on and off as required. On that note for safety reasons the straighteners start beeping after a few minutes of not being used and switch off completely after 30 minutes.for me ghds will always be worth the money. These come with a 3 year warranty and my previous pair lasted 10 years so I think they're a great investment.

my old ghd finally bit the dust I loved mine I ordered from these guys it came it conquered good job
In short YES! You absolutely can use too much heat on your hair. Burning hair is not a good smell, it’s not a good look either! You may end up having to get a pretty severe haircut if you’re not careful about the amount of heat you put directly on your locks. Read through this to get an idea of what’s safe and what will leave you wishing for a good trim (or possibly a wig).

ghd quality is well known. My wife has had a set of ghd for years. She alternated to a set of braun for a while which worked really well but eventually gave up the ghost. The only problem we had with the ghd was with the mains cable. We have replaced that twice. It was a bit of a faff but you tube came to the rescue and it was a cheap fix about 7 if I recall correctly .those old ghd's were just the straighteners but this is a really good set with a heat map a case and a very good quality brush. You often see these bundles with other things but whereas in those cases the accessories look cheap these are top notch too. They haven't cut any corners so full marks for that.
Achieve straight, sleek locks: Mist hair with ghd heat protect spray and place a fine section of dry hair between the plates of your ghd Classic Styler. Ensure that the styler is as close to the root as possible before closing the plates. Then gently move toward the tip of the section in one simple gliding motion. Repeat the process with each section of hair, gliding once from roots to ends.
if u straten your hair a lot this is the strainer 4u it totally works its awesome it handles hair good
This straightener heats up cools down very rapidly. It's light and easy to use. Doesn't singe your hair. The delivery was very quick too. Highly recommend this ghd straightener.
Wax on, wax off; we bet that’s the most in-depth thinking you’ve given to wax. Not only is it unclear how or what the stuff is, most companies slap labeling on products even when they’re not technically a wax! Here’s the deal, wax products feel just like the name says; waxy. They will feel spongy and have a thicker grip when you work it between your hands and leaves hair with a natural matte finish that can have a bit of shine. If you’re into edgy hairstyles with exaggerated lines and textured, piecey strands, then wax is ideal. The light shine also makes it perfect for formal styles like pompadours.  
I was really nervous in buying a new ghd previous one broke on me after using it for a good 3 years and treating it not very caringly but ive been using this one daily and it is of exactly the same wonderful quality that my previous ghd straightener was. It comes in the box with the authenticity card with a code so if you want you can go to the ghd website and punch in the code to see if it is real or fake. I have naturally wavy thin hair and it gets dry tangled and damaged easily.. Recently got fringe bangs and normal drugstore straighteners will just make my bangs stiff and more dry but the ghd has its way of making my hair look and feel even more hydrated than it is and very naturally silky. Thank you
Great price for ghd

Hello, ladies! This is Monica, the founder of the MyStraightener blog. In this post, I’m going to tell you about the best flat irons on the market so far and some other hair straighteners. I will also give you some tips and tricks on how to choose the best straightening iron for your hair type. At the end of the post, I’m going to answer the most common questions about using flat irons. Gosh, we have so much to discuss! I hope you have some leisure time =) 

These ultra-smooth plates are great for straightening stubborn strands like curls and waves and are also ideal for creating natural, finished curls (similar to a curling iron) and even beachy waves. By gliding effortlessly across hairs of all types, without pulling or breakage, the ISA Professional Titanium Flat Iron has the potential to leave your hair looking and feeling healthier after each use.
I had one of these previously for 3 years and it died so I purchased a new one. Love this brand works great
“I wanted a straightener I could use on wet hair, since I’m usually on the go and don’t always have time to dry it. With this Wet 2 Straight Hair straightener, I was able to straighten my hair after it was towel-dried and only had to go over my hair twice for it to be completely dry. Granted, I have semi-thin hair, so it doesn’t take too much to straighten it, but with other straighteners, I would have to go over it about three or four times and couldn’t straighten it when it was wet.”

It does the job in less time with better result. I should’ve bought it earlier
EDITOR’S CHOICE: CHI has and always will be a powerhouse brand in the hair straightener industry, and the company’s new G2 Ceramic and Titanium Flat Iron is no exception! Packed with ceramic and titanium technology, this hair straightener was designed to give you silky, shiny styles without snags. We also love its easy-to-read, color-coded temperature settings, so you know the temperatures that you are using at any given time!
Works good nice lil hello beep when it's turned on. Solid even sufficient heat but not scalding. Glides through the hair smoothly with a good feel. Features automatic shut off and extra long 9 ft cord too.high quality flat iron all around. Will update in a few months to report on it's durability after regular use.
I absolutely love this flat iron I purchased it because my friend who is a hair stylist recommended it. It is great I don't have to run it over my hair a lot it completely out straightens the chi. And I purchased it for less than half the retail value which is around 220.00.
This straightener is amazing. Although it only has one heat setting it heats up immediately and gets the job done. It doesn't feel like it's frying my hair. I love it.
Another excellent budget hot air styler is the Remington Style and Curl Air Styler and with 9 customer reviews giving 4.7 out of 5 stars I would recommend this product.  This is a great on the go styler because it is lightweight so easy to pack away.  It has two attachments so is suitable for medium length and shorter hair (25mm brush and 19mm brush) and has two heat and speed settings so you can set your curls and fast dry hair prior to styling.  The Remington Style and Curl is good for flicks, curls and adding volume, giving a glossy, lustrous finish.  Reviewers like the fact that it can be used on damp as well as dry hair and all say that it works a dream.

I was stung once buying some fake ghds online but these are the real deal. They are perfect. I ve been using them for years and my last pair gave up after five years of daily use.


Perfection
this is the original because I registered it with ghd. The flat iron is light weight and you only have to go over your hair once. I am an indian with long and very frizzy hair and this flat iron does the trick. It leaves the hair straight and smooth highly recommended.
You may as well wear a sign that says “SLIPPERY WHEN WET” when styling with what’s affectionately called “hair grease.” Pomades give the appearance of high shine with a wet, “freshly-showered” look. This product is used for classic comb overs to slicked back, red-carpet looks. Traditionally pomades have been oil based and difficult to wash out, but over at Hanz de Fuko, we’ve fixed that problem...
It is authentic . I read some review that said it isn't authentic but this review was in 2013 maybe in this year ghd didn't work in us but it has changed. Great purchase . Also you can use it in europe
Great purchase
I was worried per the other reviews but I received my ghd and was able to register it on the ghd website. All is well and it's working great so far
Nothing much to say except for this is the best investment I've ever made it leaves my hair so perfect and I love that it goes into sleep mode. Such a cool feature
I had an older set of ghd's which lasted nearly 10 years. So I replaced them with these. Delivery was quick and the product is great. They heat up really quickly and the design is easier to hold when curling my hair.
